New Look At 'Pirates Five,' 'Transformers: The Last Knight,' 'Thor: Ragnarok,' And 'Dunkirk'

As part of their preview of the films to come out this year, USA Today not only had Zack Snyder's Justice League in it, they also had a few other films that are to be released in the next twelve months along with some comments from the films' makers.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales:

Fans of the Pirates films will see a younger version of Captain Jack Sparrow in this film that will be an “enormous” fifth chapter in the swashbuckling series, promises the film's producer Jerry Bruckheimer. “It’s really edgy, still has the humor, but (offers) some real tension.”  The film will see the return of Will Turner, played by Orlando Bloom, as the new captain of the Flying Dutchman who’s trying to free his father from the curse of Davy Jones; Henry (Brenton Thwaites), who’s searching for his own dad, and astronomer Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario); the ghastly figure seen above, Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), on a blood hunt for Jack Sparrow; and of course Jack Sparrow; and a search for the Trident of Poseidonm an artefact that will supposedly cure all curses. “He’s still the star of the movie,” says Bruckheimer of Jack Sparrow.

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea – notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Benton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has never faced.
Transformers: The Last Knight:

Transformers: The Last Knight will see the return of Mark Wahlberg teaming up with Optimus Prime as they protect Earth from nefarious Decepticons, this time though some time travel is afoot, Wahlberg says: “It’s really smart and different.” Wahlberg’s character, inventor Cade Yeager, a man on the run who meets up with a British duke, played by Anthony Hopkins, and gets embedded in a whole new level of danger. But it being a Transformers movie, there will indeed be a lot of getting swung around and being “smashed through stuff,” Wahlberg says. “It’s not as cool as it would be had I been 25. At 45, it's all pretty strenuous, but I really like that Michael gives me freedom to make the character my own, improvising and bring a lot of humour and elevate the emotion.”
Thor: Ragnarok:

Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, will be facing new threats and tribulation in Ragnarok it seems as director Taika Waititi wishes to give the hero a true test. “I like it when characters have to deal with their biggest test,” the helmer says. In the film we will have a new threat in the form of Cate Blanchett's Helaa, “who’s scary and powerful but also fun,” says Waititi, and the movie also introduces warrior woman Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and the enigmatic Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). “It feels like a classic matchup where you go, ‘Who else can we put in this? Let’s put in the Hulk!’ It’s like kids in the sand pit, throwing everything in.”

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok — the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization — at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger — the Incredible Hulk!

The film is written and directed by Christopher Nolan, who having grown up a Briton definitely knows of the notorious coastal area of Dunkirk. “The ultimate race against time,” Nolan says of this film - which will focus on the Allied troops being targeted by Nazi enemies. The cast is filled with seasoned talent, Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, and others but it will have the newcomer Fionn Whitehead as an English private named Tommy. “He’s just a kid, really, and that’s sort of the point. You see events very much through his eyes,” Nolan says. “We want to put the audience on that beach, put them on a boat heading over to Dunkirk, put them in the cockpit of a Spitfire. That’s the ambition and I’m bringing all my experience in filmmaking to bear trying to achieve it.”

Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
